, and there are a ton of questions. and even though president obama's reelection was settled at about 11:15 p.m. eastern last tuesday, the election overall is still underway in some parts of the country, including one place where it appears to have mostly just broken down with a bunch of federal level races still undecided. and the state in question is not florida for once. important updates coming up there including what may be a deconcession by a democrat who previously thought he had lost in a big important u.s. senate race. that's all ahead. >>> but we have to begin with breaking news out of washington. "the washington post" is reporting tonight that president obama is considering massachusetts senator john kerry as his new secretary of defense. that's right, defense. putting the decorated veteran and former presidential candidate in charge at the pentagon and not at the state department, as had been widely speculated. "the washington post" is sourcing its reporting to unnamed senior administration officials. senator kerry is also not commenting tonight. if senator kerry does move to the cabinet for
, chris. and thanks to you for tuning in. two big stories tonight. first, president obama takes a tough stand over tacks. he delivered a wake-up call to republicans that he is determined to make the wealthy pay their fair share in tacks. the other big story, director david and after being married for and petraeus and unacceptable both as a husband and as the leader of an organization such as ours. this afternoon, the president graciously accepted my resignation. general petraeus was the most accepted leader of his generation. he's been top commander of both wars in iraq and afghanistan. president obama nominated him as the director of the cia last year. his fall is a major challenge for the president just three days after the election and a shake-up to the security team just as he deals with the attacks in libya, tensions with iran and the end of the war in afghanistan. joining me now is nbc chief foreign correspondent richard engel, jack jacobs, an msnbc policy analyst and carl bernstein, the legendary analyst now a contributor to the daily beast. thank you all for joining me tonight.
it the november surprise. in 90 minutes, president obama will hold his first press conference since re-election and he will be holding it amid circumstances no one could have predicted. just one week after america gave him a second term, at a time of high stakes negotiations over the so-called fiscal cliff, the president will likely face questions about a salacious sex scandal involving the now former cia director. >> does the president see this in general as an unwelcomed distraction at a time when he's just -- was re-elected and has a bunch of priorities in terms of the fiscal cliff and in terms of his cabinet? >> well, i certainly i think wouldn't call it welcome. obviously the, as i said to ben, the information about general petraeus came to him as a surprise. >> not exactly welcome is perhaps an understatement. the resignation of general david petraeus as cia director hangs another question mark over america's intelligence community and foreign pollicy leadership. with petraeus out he could tap john owe brennan to take over at the cia. secretary of state hillary clinton has insist
. and ignore their tea party dead enders. president obama is healthy. he's planning a national campaign to rally support for his vision of fairness. the same vision that american voted for on election day. he'll take his message beyond the beltway asking the public to pressure republicans back in washington about raising taxes on the rich. some in the gop know they lost badly and are starting to deal with it. conservative pundit bill crystal surprised a lot of people when he went on fox news and started talking sense. >> it won't kill the country if we raise taxes a little bit on millionaires. i don't understand why republicans don't take obama's offer to freeze taxes for everyone below $250,000, make it a million. really republican party going to fall on on a bunch of millionaires? >> it won't kill the country? take the president's offer? that almost sounds rational. and now some republicans in congress are also admitting they need to compromise. but not all conservatives are able to handle the new reality. in fact, some are beginning to lose it. for years grover norquist has been bull

for watching. president obama came back to washington to fight for fair deal on taxes. today he called on his base. i love it. he went right to the folks who put him in the white house. president obama held his first official closed door meeting with groups from outside the white house. the invited guests were all leaders of labor organizations and progressive think tanks. compare this list to the guest list for tomorrow's meeting. 12 of the most powerful ceos in american business. this schedule was not a mistake. president obama was letting the middle class and the workers of this country know, you come first. aflcio president is confident the president will keep his commitment to the current tax rates for the middle class. >> the president led with that notion of protecting the middle class, and now you have republicans that have it in their power. they could sign a bill tomorrow that protects the middle class, and we'll see what they do. are we going to push them on that? without a doubt we're going to push them on that. are we going to collectively stand up and make sure that workers get
says obama bought the election. let's play "hardball." ♪ >>> good evening. i'm chris matthews in washington. let me start tonight with this. you'd have thought that mitt romney would have stopped this crap. during the campaign he was out there selling it, that president obama was buying black votes by dumping the work requirement for welfare. remember that little sugar plum? it had it all, the accusation that minority voters could be scarfed up with a little chump change. throw them a little something and the votes would come pouring back. here he was yesterday, romney, schmoozing with his donor base about how the whole thing went wrong. it seems the president did a little wholesale purchasing, he said. he bought the minority with health care and bought the students with free student loans. great work there, mitt. you're at it again with your double barrels. one, claims that aren't true, and, two, that old dog whistle of yours. fact. people in the income bracket you mentioned have to kick in to get health care. fact, students still have to play interest on their college loan.

obama." and the u.s. defense secretary meeting on the flight deck with the commander of the u.s. aircraft carrier obama is the american defense secretary, who in the game is named david petraeus. before this week it probably was not a bad bet in video game land that in 13 years a then 73-year-old david petraeus might be defense secretary, but now today that is a rather bad bet. it means that this video game someday in the future will be unearthed with the same glee and disbelief that accompanied the discovery of the old dating game footage of a future michigan governor, jennifer granholm. president obama was sworn into office as president. at the end of january 2009, just over 100 days after that, less than four months after he was sworn in, the new president did something absolutely remarkable. something that had not been done in more than 50 years. the new president fired the man in charge of the war. >> president obama has said that the war in afghanistan is one the u.s. must win. senior officials here at the pentagon have decided it will take new military leadership to do
like those things. and it certainly didn't get thrilled when obama won the first time. pretty miserable now that he's won again. in fact, it can't believe it. it looks at your america, this world of the actual election results, as a stranger in a strange land. for days now it's been in a daze wandering around wondering, what gimmick switched the channels? what odd happening bounced them from the world they believed in, saw all around them, to the world they find themselves so suddenly and shockingly now a part of, the world that is truly undeniably america. i'm joined to talk about this by the former rnc chair michael steele and mother jones washington bureau chief david corn. he's the author of the ebook "47 percent ,"a great book and a great get. he's an msnbc political analyst. let's start now. in politico jonathan martin describes the gop media cocoon writing, in this reassuring conservative pocket universe rasmussen polls are gospel, the benghazi controversy is worse than watergate, fair and balanced isn't just marketing, and dick morris is a political seer. this morning former hou

developments coming just two hours away from president obama's first news conference since his re-election victory. a moment when an incumbent about to be sworn in for a second term would be expected to outline his goals and agenda but it's likely to be dominated by headlines surrounding two of the nation's highest ranking military general, petraeus and general john allen. let's refresh the details. general john allen is denying any and all allegations of an extramarital affair and any other wrongdoing. his nomination as commander of nato remains on hold but continues to lead in afghanistan. the white house expressing confidence in his ability to do so yesterday echoed by two members of the president's cabinet today. >> no one should leap to any conclusions. no one should leap to any conclusions here. general allen is doing an excellent job. >> general allen is a distinguished marine and commander who's been an important part of the nato isaf mission in afghanistan. >> and this morning nbc news is confirming a connection between general allen and jill kelley, the florida woman who
the 9/11 terror attack in benghazi as president obama stands up for his u.n. secretary against scathing criticism from republicans. all that while embattled former cia director david petraeus prepares to testify on capitol hill today. and breaking news from the middle east. as rockets are fired between the israelis and palestinians, this morning three israelis are killed. we'll have a live report coming up. first, good morning, everyone. i'm lynn berry. today, one scandal will give way to another in washington. david petraeus expected to testify in a closed door senate intelligence committee hearing. general petraeus is not expected to talk about his personal indiscretions that ended his cia career last week. instead, he'll be discussing details in the deadly attack on the u.s. consulate in benghazi, libya that resulted in the death of christopher stevens and three others. >>> also, the controversy over u.n. ambassador susan rice calling the assault spontaneous in september reached a boiling point. yesterday president obama and his first news conference since re-election exploded at rep

>>> very good morning to you. i'm richard lui. chris jansing is away this morning. president obama seems ready for a fight over what happened in libya and the fiscal cliff. a confident commander in chief took to the podium at the first news conference since his re-election. he pushed back on suggestions that his security team mishandled what happened in libya and defended ambassador susan rice. >> if senator mccain and senator graham and others want to go after somebody, they should go after me. and i'm happy to have that discussion with them. but for them to go after the u.n. ambassador who had nothing to do with benghazi and was simply making a presentation based on intelligence that she had received and to besmirch her reputation is outrageous. >>. >> and the president drew a line on taxes saying revenue must come from people who make over $250,000. >> what have i'm not going to do is extend further a tax cut for folks who don't need it, which would cost close to a trillion dollars. >> i want to bring in a columnist for the "washington post." good morning. let's start with you.
>>> president obama has named michael morell as the acting cia director. it is not clear who will testify on next week's benghazi attack. >>> many are questioning how many with an impeccable military record could be brought down by an extramarital afare. joining me now jack jacobs. welcome to you, colonel. i know you have known this man for an awfully long time. he was a cadet while you were teaching him at west point. talk about him in general as a man and general. >> very smart kid. spoke very well, always did very well. full of energy. very smart in thought as generals, potential generals should. far, far ahead of what's happening right now. always thought of consequences, which is something of an irony in the circumstances. and not surprisingly rose very, very quickly up through the ranks. >> which by that description you find shocking this if he's a man who looks at consequences of actions. this is something that took him down not as a result of him trying to cover up an affair but fbi being alert today look into some level of impropriety. >> yeah. my understanding is th

's coming from tommy vietor. this is coming the days after president obama won re-election. certainly not how the administration envisioned the first few days of the new term. they are certainly stunned by some of these developments and trying to stay focused on the fiscal cliff, that's something that's pending and potentially could impact all americans, however, this is something they'll have to deal with, president obama is set to hold a news conference this week. he'll get a lot of questions about this. about the timing. about how this entire process has been handled. >> the president is supposed to meet with labor leaders today, obviously the allen and petraeus is taking up a lot of oxygen in washington, d.c., today. but this is an important meeting about how to approach the fiscal cliff to come to a compromise? >> right, there are a couple of different motmotivations for th meetings. one, to get a sense of the different interests coming from business leaders. also, i think president obama would like to get some of these folks on his side to come up with a balanced approach to def

this morning, president obama is dealing with two major issues. first, the resignation of the head of the cia, david peteus. and the possibility of a major financial crisis triggered if the country goes off the fiscal cliff. but right now, it seems like the petraeus scandal is overshadowing everything. the four star general resigned friday after admitting an affair with his biographer, paula broadwell. and investigators are asking why they didn't know about the investigation sooner. >> we received no advance notice. it was like a lightning bolt. the way i found out, i came back to washington thursday night. friday morning, the staff director told me there were a number of calls from press about this. i called david petraeus. >> and are you going to investigate why the fbi didn't notify you before? >> yes, absolutely. this is something that could have had an effect on national security. i think we should have been told. there is a way to do it. >> and several top republicans are demanding petraeus come back to capitol hill this week to testify before congress over the attack on the
't have to ask what the american people wanted. president obama ran on an explicit program of raising taxes on top earners. and boehner is still talking about the romney plan, mess around with loopholes and take away loopholes from top earners. that was romney's plan and romney lost. the president holds the cards here. the world won't come to an end on january 1st if all the rates expire. it's more of a curve. i think we can afford to go off it. >> we'll see. as we quickly approach it. my thanks to the power panel today. i really appreciate your time today. >>> coming up next, a bipartisan plan to fix the nation's debt. the co-chairs are going to join me, ed rendell and former new hampshire senator judd gregg will join me to talk about this. we want to know what you think. should general petraeus have resigned? tweet me your thoughts about this or find me on facebook. oun] today, jason is here to volunteer to help those in need. when a twinge of back pain surprises him. morning starts in high spirits, but there's a growing pain in his lower back. as lines grow longer, his pain continu
if general petraeus doesn't testify. >> of course, all of this comes as president obama faces scrutiny on the handling of the benghazi attacks, struggles to restack his second term cabinet, and oh, yeah, faces daunting negotiations over that dreaded fiscal cliff. no honeymoon, indeed, for this president. let's get to our panel. in washington msnbc contributor jonathan capehart, democratic strategist julian epstein, and in atlanta msnbc contributor goldie taylor. our tremendous trio. jonathan, fair to say this is not exactly what president obama expected to be dealing with the week after his triumphant election? >> no, not at all. in fact, after election day the president, speaker boehner, senate ma minority leader mitch mcconnell all talking about the facecle life, what they were going to do, not going to do, what they wanted to negotiate, not negotiate, but on friday, as news exploded out from the cia thanks to our own andrea mitchell that the president accepted the resignation of the cia director, general david petraeus, all of that -- you have to add that plus all the things you tal
